Well, the beginning of 2010 didn't bring us any magic flying cars, but we did get to see some really innovative, interesting new parts for this year. With the SEMA and PRI shows over, almost everyone in the aftermarket has revealed their hands, leaving the entire industry "all-in" for the upcoming racing season. Have you seen any new parts that you just can't wait to install? We have, and we've compiled the top 25 most interesting ones into the following list. Some of these are brand-new parts, some of them are revisions, but worthy of mentioning. Whether you are looking for the hottest new piece for your 2010 Camaro or conversion parts to put your older-generation GM on the cutting edge of technology-it's all here. Now, we just need to spend the rest of our days figuring out how to afford them!
Accel DFI Gen8
With the new Gen8 boxes, racers can now control up to eight coils and fuel injectors individually, along with multiple output controls such as torque converter lockup, fan control, delay boxes or a trans brake. Gen8 has a slew of nitrous controls, as well as boost-friendly tables. Three on-board processors and four on-the-fly switchable maps mean you (or your tuner) have amazing control, accuracy, and speed. After each run, the integrated 64 channel internal data logging means you are always up to speed on what just happened, and can make educated tuning changes with tons of quality data.

Akrapovic C6 Z06 Titanium Exhaust
Akrapovic is no stranger to building high-end exhausts, although new for 2010 is its entry into the domestic car market; a full titanium cat-back for the C6 Z06. Built using the same attention to detail you would expect from a Formula 1 team, these exhausts are ultra-lightweight and retain an OEM-style butterfly after the titanium muffler, keeping you quiet around town and loud when you need it. We were able to pick up the entire cat-back with one hand and we assure you, it doesn't get any lighter than this.
Fast LSXRT 102mm Manifold
By now you have surely made yourself familiar with FAST's 102mm LSXr intake manifold available for LS3/L99/L92 and LS7-style rectangular port heads-now feast your eyeballs on the new cathedral-port truck intake. The same polymer material and modular design is used with optimized runner shapes, lengths, and sizes for gains at virtually every rpm-no matter if it is a stock 6.0L or a blown 402. The 102mm inlet can be paired with FAST's Big Mouth 102mm throttle body as well as stock 90mm or aftermarket 90+mm (or even three-bolt 78mm using an adapter). All factory accessories and OEM fuel/emissions connections hook right up, and there are even integrated nitrous bungs for those feeling saucy.

BMR Fabrication 2010 Camaro Suspension
It should come as no surprise that the master fabricators at BMR have already released a full lineup of 2010 Camaro upgrades. Whether you are looking to just add some stability or you want to completely overhaul your entire suspension, all of your new Camaro suspension pieces are just a phone call away. Even if you don't plan on going crazy, we recommend looking into the front and rear driveshaft safety loops, especially if you enjoy doing any aggressive driving. We got a sneak peek at the new four-point strut tower brace and we expect that to be a hot seller.

Edelbrock Pro Touring Suspension Kits
Edelbrock may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think suspension, but that doesn't mean they don't produce some killer suspension packages. The new Pro-Touring system ships complete with matched springs, shocks, sway bars, subframe connectors, torque arm, and a pair of lower control arms. Everything comes ready to bolt on and includes all of the necessary hardware for an easy and safe installation. This is a great package for anyone looking to turn an aging F-body into a modern Z06-killer.
